Pharmaceutical Brand PR: Developing Engaging Campaigns and Measuring ROI
The value of PR can seem immeasurable in brand positioning. Yet, in an age of budgetary juggling by marketing departments, the drive to scrutinize ROI is increasingly important. What’s more, as expectations on PR outcomes increase—in part due to social media—its role is broadening. A trend towards using key performance indicators to measure previously difficult-to-define notions of success is emerging.

Key quotes

“I define PR as engaging and communicating with the multiple stakeholders involved in the decision process or the environment that you’re trying to influence. A lot of PR is about creating the right environment through which to have those conversations about diseases, brands and products.”
– Sam Barnes, Director, Axon Communications

“Those who define PR as simply media relations or the output and get PR involved very late in the process are not getting as much out of PR as they should. Today, PR is about defining the right blend of communications across both traditional and online media.”
– Claire Spencer, CEO, i-2-i

“The incorporation of social media and everything related to digital has changed the PR function and has lead us to broaden our perspective on communication and how things are evolving in the overall society.”
– Javier Boix, Strategic Communications Manager, Abbott Laboratories
